Thoughts:
• This moisturizer is both lightweight and hydrating.
• I am in love with the packaging and dispenser.
• There is a slight floral scent to the product, but the fragrance did not irritate my skin.
• I usually prefer oil free products, but this one did not have that greasy feeling at all! It definitely feels like a great noncomedogenic moisturizer for me, even though I have oily/combo skin type.
• My skin’s moisture barrier felt stronger after using this every morning for about two weeks.
• Sebum levels have been low recently, and I think this moisturizer has helped.
• Given the above, I think this product lives up to its claims.
• Pricepoint – what I would consider a luxury product priced at $85/50ml.
